The 6-pin 42 seems to be an odd fellow there among the P type bases of the others valves given.

There was a 5 valve Palmavox sold by FJ Palmer and Son of Sydney in 1933:

...but the photos show regular round pin valve sockets.

I too have a Palmavox radio, but an earlier model than that. It uses 57, 58, 57, 2A5, 80.
